OK, so if you're going to be brave enough to try color blocking this season, we say to start out on the safer side and when you feel more comfortable, go bolder. We decided to go with pairing blue and orange here. We love the colors together. Actually one of our favorites is to pair navy and orange together, like Victoria Beckham did in her Spring collection here. We think the two colors seem to compliment each other well. And we're not the only ones that think so; we see the two paired together in interior design all of the time, like here and here. And you know what, it's really not a terribly new thing, color-blocking. We decided to go for it last year when we were inspired by the Gucci 2011 teal and purple/blue color trends. So really, remember it's been a round a bit so you don't need to feel terribly self conscious. And lastly, these two colors reminded us of this fabulous Roksanda Ilincic dress we remember from last year. So cool.
